Publicly available records indicate that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors in Qudian (NYSE:QD) in connection to alleged violations of securities laws by QD. Fitapelli Kurta is interested in speaking to investors who have complaints regarding investments made in Qudian from October 15, 2017 to December 12, 2017.
The class action complaint specifically alleges that during the period in question, QD might have provided false and/or misleading material information, and/or failed to disclose adverse material information to the public in connection to its initial public offering on October 18, 2017, namely: that the company had loan collection practices that were inadequate or that didn’t exist at all, considering they considered bad loans to be welfare; and that the company had data systems and protocols that were not sufficiently prepared to protect borrower information against system breaches, which had taken place. The complaint alleges that when true facts emerged, investors suffered losses.
